specifies the method name. It can be either a class method or an instance method.
The first return value is a list of the argument types (that is, foreign types). Note that the first and second arguments of all Objective-C methods are the object/class and the method selector (name). These are are typed as objc-object-pointer and sel, so the
list always starts with these two symbols.
The second return value is the result type of the method.
The third return value is a string which is the type encoding of the signature of the method, as stored internally by the Objective-C runtime system.
